Luke's favorite movie provided the theme for his second birthday party.
Before the party he helped us with building his play structure - which kept the guys busy throughout the party and late into the night.
Opening presents...Luke got a haircut from daddy before the party. As you can see his eye is still healing from falling on a rose bush.
This is what happens when you leave a box of packing material open near Luke.

Camping with 7 families and 13 kids. This time instead of going all the way to Yosemite, we stayed closer to home; right up the hill in San Mateo.
Each family was in charge of one or two meals which made packing and meal planning a little more manageable. Here's an example of one of our breakfasts -- the parents try to get a few bites of food in here and there while running around making sure the kids are taken care of.
Luke enjoyed hanging out with his friend Annelise.Luke manages to get dirty no matter what he's doing, whether it's playing in the dirt with his trucks...or picking berries in the mud... or (not pictured) jumping into the river and making his dad jump in after him so we had to hike all the way back to camp soaking wet.

Great view of the Bay Area on the hike up from the Mountain Winery.
Luke taking a break from the hike to throw big rocks. We were amazed by his endurance; he ran full speed all the way up the mountain - and back down.Luke loved running around the Pebble Beach golf course. The Spyglass course has some great areas overlooking the ocean for pictures.Finished off the evening with some dancing to Jazz at Roy's.

This evening we borrowed a friend's convertible and drove down to Carmel - The Inn at Spanish Bay - for a great dinner at Roy's.
Good food, great scenery, and even a guy walking around the course playing bagpipes.
and we took a stroll on the beach at sunset.

The best place to recover from Surgery is the Capitola beach. Especially on a Monday.
Luke had his first kite flying lesson.
And we played in the waves. Luke has no fear, he sprints into the water any chance he gets.
Luke enjoyed blowing sand out of his spoon,
and trying to jump into the river...
We ate breakfast on the wharf. I still can't open my mouth all the way, but I was able to eat small bites of my omelet.

I'm feeling good and getting a lot of time to read and watch movies. Still drinking my strained food through my wired shut teeth. Glad Sharon is here to help Natalie and keep her company while I'm out of commission. Looking forward to getting the wires cut tomorrow.
